Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dan Arthur, President, ALL Consulting, presenting a virtual seminar titled A New Era: Permanent Plugging of Idle & Orphan Wells for Carbon Credits on Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

Plugging and abandoning oil & gas wells, whether idle/non-producing wells or orphan wells has entered a new era on many fronts. Today, there are several carbon registries that have developed detailed protocols to plug these wells to permanently eliminate methane emissions. Unlike past practices, emission measurement and quantification is critical, assuring that plugging and restoration activities are permanent is a priority, and there is significant scrutiny on all these practices to gain assurances that results can be trusted. This has spawned new procedures, new technologies, new plugging materials, and more. Mr. Arthur will discuss these and other related issues.

Dan Arthur is a founding member of ALL Consulting and has served as the company’s President & Chief Engineer since its inception in 1999. Prior to founding ALL Consulting, Mr. Arthur served as a Vice President of upstream energy services at a large international consulting engineering firm, served as an Enforcement Officer and National Expert for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a drilling and operations engineer with an independent oil producer, and worked for an oilfield service company (Halliburton) in the mid-continent.
